I took my 2007 RDX for service due to the Takata Inflator Recall. The dealership replaced the part and the clicking sound went away but after a few months it came back. I contacted the dealership about the problem their response is they already fixed it so now its my responsibility.

I decided to get rid of the vehicle and never buy another Honda/Acura again. Fast forward 2019. I still have the vehicle, which I drive sparingly, as the clicking sound continues. In March saw on the news that Honda had to issue another recall for the same airbag due to the fact that they replaced the inflator with another Takata product which is also proving to be defective.

I called Acura USA customer relations and I am being told that despite the fact my vehicle was recalled and serviced for the airbag , this time it does not qualify. On what basis they did not say, but my vehicle is still producing the clicking sound and I am getting check engine lights for the issue. This means it is going to be a battle again for Honda to accept liability which they are indicating they do not want to. I suppose i must wait for an accident and become a part of the statistics for them to accept liability.

I have made it my resolve that Honda / Acura will not be on my list when I purchase my next vehicle.

clicking sound from dash, airbag warning message stays on On October 3, 2015 a warning light came on stating to check airbag . A day after there was a clicking sound coming from the steering wheel or under the dash. Upon research I found that Honda has issued recalls for defective airbag , but none for the my year RDX. It is my assumption that Honda has used the same manufacturer for airbags for all its vehicles for that specific year so I find it surprising that no recall was issued for the RDX I am currently investigating the matter.

Update from Oct 17, 2016: Takata Recall

As an owner of a 2007 Acura RDX I received a letter on the recall issued. My vehicle was taken in for service on July 1 , 2016 and my vehicle was returned to me a few hours later. Some 3 months later the symptoms that were first noticed have returned.

That is the clicking sound from behind the steering wheel and the airbag notification warning on the dash. I contacted Ed Voyles Acura who performed the repairs for the recall to let them know that I am having the same problems again . Their response was shocking as I was given a convoluted explanation that amounted to the assertion that the symptoms I am experiencing has nothing to do with the recall. The very same issues that alerted me to a problem with the airbag system. It is obvious that there is a defect and a very dangerous one at that with the airbag system in my Acura RDX which the dealer is insinuating that any repairs done will be at my expense. In my opinion this is not right nor fair and the issue remains unresolved.
